The LORD is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him,

Hope these don't make you feel too cold........
Just thought they were all so pretty.
Now on with my Thankfuls............
Thankful for a great day with lil darling, It was so good to see her after almost 3 weeks, and catch up with what she has been doing. Had a lot of school work to do, but we made some time to have fun too, and she finally had some time in late afternoon to have her lil buddy next door over.......they were over the moon happy about that..........

Thankful that my sweet neighbor brought us her wonderful veggie soup, and there is a bit of a story to it. I was talking with another long time friend and she knows I have been sick, and I was telling her I have got to call my neighbor and find out what the tomato base is that she uses in her veggie soup because typically tomato based things can cause me to have heart burn after a couple of bowls, but her soup never bothers me. So I was laughing cause I was saying I keep hoping she might send me some but guess I'm gonna have to find out and make me some and my friend said well maybe if you call her and ask about how to make the soup, she will just make you some. lol
Anyway, later that day, our neighbor text me to see how we were doing, so I wrote her back and told her and asked about how she made her soup base, and she said I have a pot on the stove right now and was gonna ask if yall wanted some..............and of course, I said yes, and I was overjoyed and had a feeling it was because my friend had prayed.....and I talked to her later, and she said she did.......lol So thankful for the answer to pray, and the soup that was so so delicious!! Have had it 3 times this week. It is the perfect comfort food. God is so good.
Thankful that my sweet hubby decided I needed a vaporizer cause since we are using our heat some nights now, It is drying the air out a lot a we are both experiencing that dried out feeling in our mouth and noses. So he got us a vaporizer on yesterday (Monday) and I can not tell you how much better we slept, and did not wake up stuffed up or have that dried out feeling, and best of all, my coughing has gotten better ever day since.
It was wonderful.
Thankful for family, friends and neighbors that love me.
Thankful that I made cuban food on Monday, and it was so delicious and really hit the spot, and thankful that my friend I was talking with in #2--3 reminded me of it as she said she had come across my recipe for Picadillo that I had given her over 30 yrs. ago. lol I had ground beef and was gonna make a meat loaf but Picadillo sounded so much better, and it was!!

Thankful the I got started on transitioning
from Christmas to Winter decor on Monday.
Thankful that I had been rearranging in my
mind for days before, as I knew exactly where
to start and what I wanted to do in the
family room already.
Note: Have taken down most of the things
that looked real Christmasy, and left what
looks Wintery, just have to fill in some
spots yet, but getting there.
Thankful for strawberries that were
grown here in Florida and actually
not too far from where we live.
Imagine that!! Anyway, they were
just so delicious..........it felt like spring
for a few minutes...........
Thankful that everything went well for
our Daughter and had a good result from a
medical procedure she had done on
Thankful for the discovery of program-
able tea light candles. I had the normal
tea lights but you have to light and
replace them all every night or the
battery operated kind, but you still
have to take them out of the candle
holder and turn them on and off
every night. I wanted to have a large
number of them on the mantel and other
places in the house. Hubby found some that
once you turn them on they stay on for
6 hrs. and turn themselves off.
They are wonderful, and have kept
our home looking so nice and festive
all thru Christmas and thru the
Winter Season and beyond if I want.
A great discovery I might add.
Thankful to have a lil outing today,
We picked up lil darling and had here
for awhile, then ran to Sam's and
Marshalls and to din din at Longhorn.
Very Nice to get out.....my 2nd time in
almost 4 weeks.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place
Glad you could stop in......
Have a lovely yet Warm Winter Week.
Love, Hugs and
Mid January Blessings,
